Hi, I'm the fur mum of two well loved and indulged miniature schnauzers, Magnus and Miss Billie. I grew up with dogs and in recent years have loved having my own. Magnus and Miss Billie are very socialised. They go with me wherever possible and we often have friends dogs visit. My social engagements usually include venues suitable for them.
I've been minding dogs for friends and members of my dog club for several years. While usually only a few days, I have had dogs staying up to a month so am experienced in looking after other dogs.
My home is very dog friendly and features a dog door for access between house and yard. My dogs sleep inside on their beds. I have an average sized backyard that is fully fenced and backs onto a reserve and walking path. The yard has a lush shady lawn and a sandpit to dig about in. There are no cats or bird residents to worry about.
All our canine guests are treated as part of the family, allowed inside and the recipients of lots of pats, cuddles, and affection. They also come along on our twice daily walks. on weekends we frequently go for trips to the dog park, beach and on outings.
Diet and sleeping conditions depend on what they are used to, your choice.
I suggest owners bring a piece of their clothing for their dog to sleep with for comfort while away from home.
While I am not a professional groomer, I am experienced with grooming and clipping my schnauzers and able to do tidy ups for an additional fee.
Yvonne is a friendly, genuine dog-lover who will look after your dog like it was her own, and her two adorable little fur-babies are also friendly, gentle and welcoming. I would totally recommend Yvonne. This was the first time my old dog had an unknown sitter and I felt confident leaving her in very good hands. Thanks so much Yvonne...we hope to visit again sometime!
Once again a great stay! Thank you!
No formal skills, however both my dogs have received basic skills training for obedience, with occasional refreshers.
I can administer oral medication but nothing more invasive.
